Sounds great, good voices, the right voice for bukowski could have even gone more whiskey/cigarette rough, even drunk and smoking continuously might have worked, missing lines, making bits up! Well....maybe not. NEED MORE BUKOWSKI -- NEED ALL BUKOWSKI -- NEED POETRY -- WILLING TO EXCHANGE MONEY AND CREDITS
The sample audio was way out of context and made the reading sound off. But finally I bought this and found that Patton knows his Bukowski.
I never did believe the snideness that some narrators give Bukowski's writing. Recordings of Bukowski himself don't have that tone of forced irony. He means what he's saying. Patton gets it and gives us a lively but straightforward interpretation. I'm getting the whole Bukowski by Patton set.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
yes, because it is written and narrated by masters of storytelling
What did you like best about this story?
a look into the life on Skid Row... and of Charles Bukowski during the 60's
What about Will Patton’s performance did you like?
He is the most spell binding narrator I have ever heard.. his acting and inflections and passion seethes in each character. I cannot find words to praise his reading ability. I will listen to him read the phone book!
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
what it is like to be an "Alcoholic"....
Any additional comments?
bought every book I could on this author and this narrator
